If only we could read Chinese... if it is chinese... @Jeremy can't you ask one of your friends to tells us what is written here?

I do hold a Fellowship of the Ring, same binding, dustjacket, and also HmCo pirated edition.

Do you know the following copy of the Hobbit?

http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/tolkien-book-store/CLP0052.htm

It reminds me of the Taiwanese editions, but is not the same...
Just mentions HmCo on the jacket, printed by Houghton Mifflin and a 1966 date.

Further has something that looks like Chinese characters... but no other info.

The red boards are similar to a Fellowship of the Ring copy I hold, that also shows the same Chinese characters and no further info either.

Is this some kind of pirated edition? The paper is of extreme low quality
and the book is very thin (like the taiwanese hobbit).


Got one reaction so far from Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull:

"We haven't seen this edition, but agree that it appears to be a Chinese pirate."

well it is still up on harpercollins website but you can't find it just by looking under tolkien! http://www.harpercollins.co.uk/Titles/86506/unfinished-tales-(deluxe-slipcase-edition)-j-r-r-tolkien-9780007542925
the site is buggy and so I'm used to books seeming to disappear (most of the times it means they are doing updates and images are coming!)

I can make one... but it is the same set, same box, but with one book extra. Actually looks better then the 4 sets. Saddest part, the courrier they used managed to destroy ten sets (don't know if HC is going to replace the slipcases), otherwhise there are now 90 sets left.

Man I hate shipping carriers who have a lack for what we buy. Too many stories these days.
